9/3/14: Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters Calls on DNR Secretary Stepp to Reject Smart Sand Green Tier Application
“The decision of whether to undermine the integrity of the Green Tier program or not rests in the hands of Governor Walker appointee, Secretary Stepp. We join thousands of others in asking Secretary Stepp to stop delaying and reject the Smart Sand Green Tier application,” concluded Sayers.
“Not only does Smart Sand not meet the Green Tier criteria, they are guilty of violating air pollution standards already. Awarding them with this special recognition would be nothing less than greenwashing. And that’s not going to sit well with Wisconsin citizens, past Green Tier recipients, or us,” said Anne Sayers, program director for Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters.
Anne Sayers, program director for the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters, said the violations are an ongoing problem, and wondered if Walker's support of the company kept the DOJ silent about the settlement.
